When considering manufacturing processes, a part of the quality assurance has to do with the handling of chemical materials, especially if the temperature of components is an integral part of a process. Temperatures that are too high or too low can affect the quality and effectiveness of a finished product. Thermochemical hazards and the avoidance of them is dependent upon the safe handling during the process and the measurement of quantities and temperatures.Hazards can be the result of…

A testing laboratory plays an essential role in inspecting materials to provide unbiased and independent test results for manufacturers and consumers. The tests we provide usually try to answer aspects such as the final release commodities, analyzing product failure, incoming materials assessment, and comparing competitors’ materials. Here is more on the thermoanalytical testing laboratory process.Historically, this examining method was used to investigate polymers. But today, the process…

DSC is a thermal analytical method where the difference in the heat needed to raise the temperature of a reference and sample is measured as temperature function. The sample and reference are kept at nearly the same temperature throughout the process. The temperature during this phenomenon is made in such a way that the sample temperature rises linearly as a time function. The reference must have a heat capacity over various temperatures that need to be scanned. This article highlights more…

A thermal runaway occurs in batteries when a cell or area surrounding the cell achieves elevated temperatures. This may be due to mechanical failure, heat failure, or even electrochemical abuse. At increased temperatures, exothermic decomposition will begin, which will make the self-heating of a cell to be higher than the rate at which it is dissipated to the surrounding areas. This will cause instability, and it is for this reason why battery thermal runaway testing is required.Testing the…
